With it’s release date looming (October 14th), Matthijs van Heijningen’s direct prequel to John Carpenter’s The Thing, which is also called ‘The Thing‘ (they must have saved a butt load not having to reprint any stationary), finally has a red band trailer.
It’s fast, it’s violent, and kind of looks like a bunch of scenes from the the 1982 film re-filmed with cheap CGI.
Don’t get me wrong, this time around we get Mary Elizabeth Winstead (as Ripley from Aliens?) instead of Kurt Russel, but maybe I am just being judgmental.
Judge for yourself, the Trailer is after the jump.
So What do you think? Rush out to see it? Wait to rent it? Lament that it was ever made?
